If you listen to the podcast or were around during the Lazer Team campaign, you probably know that I am a huge fan of crowdfunding. I often show up with some bizarre gadget that I backed which will (I am sure) change my life immeasurably for the better. And the Lazer Team campaign was an awesome, summer-long community event that reminded everyone in the world just how massive and supportive the Rooster Teeth community is.
Sadly, the story for crowdfunding the last few months has been some very high-profile projects failing to deliver the products that were backed. The goal for our campaign was to deliver the first-ever Rooster Teeth movie, and we did that in ANOTHER record-setting evening of crowdsourced screenings all over the globe. You guys should get a record for breaking records.
As Lazer Team heads into the home stretch toward a retail DVD/Blu-ray release, we wanted to pause and evaluate the progress of the campaign, break down the funds, and lay down some dates for the final deliverables.
To that end, we have produced the following report card which tells you everything you need to know about the project we made together:
Any questions or comments? Hit us up in the discussion below!
The final physical deliverables are the signed scripts, which have been manufactured and are currently being signed by members of the writing staff. The digital scripts will go out when the physical ones do.
Scripts being signed:
That leaves the last digital stretch goal: three more installments of my favorite show, Game Time. Next week, I will sit down with three new guests to record those episodes. I've already announced Meg Turney and our production designer, Marcus LaPorte. I am happy to say that my final guest will be Lazer Team co-star, Mr. Michael Jones. Prepare your ears.
Thanks again for all your support during Lazer Team. It would not be the same movie without you!
